Synopsis:
Two teenagers fall in love, but they’re from two different worlds with very opposite family backgrounds. Remy is intrigued by Juliyat. She’s cool and clever thanks to an eventful and challenging life. Juliyat likes Remy because he’s full of brightness and spontaneity. But being in love in hostile surroundings is no easy task. Desperately, the teenagers try to get together in public and then secretly.

Remy’s father is a struggling single dad and he strongly opposes the asylum centre in their town. Juliyat’s family – who live at the asylum centre – see her as their ticket to fitting in. Remy and Juliyat try to bring both sides together, but don’t succeed. Once their love is exposed, the difficult relationship between the locals and asylum seekers explodes with catastrophic consequences. Will both parties manage to bury the hatchet before Christmas and finally work together to save Remy and Juliyat?
